U W. A. LOO ROLLING.
The first annual log rolling and pic-
nic of the Kay county M W. A Log
Rolling Association was held at the
fair grounds in this city last Thurs-
day and was a success in every par-
ticular. National Lecturer Sullivan
wired Jiom Herrington, Kan-as, that
a wreck on the railroad made it im-
possible for him to reach b.acnwell,
and Rev. A. M. Verdin, of Edmond,
who was here attending conference,
was substituted, and made a splendid
addtess It is estimated that there
were fully 3000 people present. The
drills, contests and sports afforded
much amusement, the addresses were
interesting and instructive, and the
Ijicnic feature was highly enjoyed.
The prizes were distributed as fol-
lows: Blackwell, Nardin, and Ponca
City teams each gave an excellent
drill, and B'ackwell being barred the
contest resulted; Nardin, first $25;
Ponca City second $15. Ponca City
Royal Neighbor team delighted the
audience with their beautiful work,
and were awarded the $5 prize.
In the tug of war, Nardin was
again first $5, and PoncaCity second,
$3 Ponca City however won the
first prize, $5, with Nardin second for
most members in parade, Blackwell
being barred. The other prizes were
awarded as follow's:

In the evening the Woodmen met
in the lodge room with from 125 to
150 present; B. F. Vannatta, was
the candidate, and the work was put
on by Nardin team, assisted by Ponca
City, and It is needless to say that
Mr. Vannatta got all that was com-
ing to him. An address was made by
Rev. Harmon, of White Rock, for-
merly of Nardin, who gives credit to
Woodmen for his now being a Chris-
tian minister, as they insisted on him
improving his morals, or leaving the
order, before his conversion. A splen-
did time was had and after the work,
refreshments were served. The lo-
cal Woodmen are all pleased with
tne crowd and feel that the order
was greatly benefited, both locally
and all over the country. A call was
made for a meeting In this city for
Nov. 5, 1905, to finish up the business,
elect new officers, etc. Ponca City
will have the pleasure of giving the
log rolling next year.
Prof. Samuels, of Wichita, has

the articles appearing In this paper

AN OPEN LETTER
From Prof Samuels,of Wichi-
ta. K.ins., to Or. L. L- Lon£.
of Alva, Okla.
Dear Doctor L. L. Long:
On my second visit to Alva whin l
came hv special reque-t of some of
your c'tizen-. you called on me Sat or
da v, NoV 5'h, about 10 o’clock a. m,
and requested me to leave Alva on t h
first train I told you that I would
have 'o wau till about 11 o’clock an<
you requested me to absent myself so
that uo cue would be able to see me
as you were acting as mayor and wa>
hea t i officer and that the Count)
Attorn y gave you orders to act for
him; ai d if l d'd not do as you re-
quested y. u would place me under ar-
rest. it seems that I would not leavi
at that hour, and as there was ni
place where I could hide, you place:
me under ai resi for breaking the law
0 the Terr tory. When you wer.
aware oft e act that I was a law
breaker and wa- violating the laws o!
Oklahoma, was It right for a good
citizen like you to advise me to hid
or to get out of y«Ur city at once? I
it right to -h’eld rrimlna’s? It don't
seem that you are the proper person
for the pro: ect'on of the city to In
turned ovir to. You are well aware
of C-e f.iot that I ain located In Wlch
ita, Kansas and Kansas has the same
laws as Oklahoma or any other state
intheUnlcr. I was also located In
Kansas City, Mo., and If I am not mis-
taken the laws of Missouri are just as
strict as In Oklahoma, I lived inKan-
sas City and did heal'ng s ime as I am
in Wichita, Kansas. Ycu claim that
1 am practicing medicine; this you
will have to prove when the proper
time comes. Dear Doctor, let us see
where I have committed a wrong. On
the 10th of September Mr. and Mrs
W. E. Ferbrache came to my room at
the hotel with their daughter nine
years of age, who was suffering from
lung and spina! trouble; hercondition
was so serious that she could not
walk without being assisted; she was
so weak that she cou’d not ho’d her
head up and after being under my
treatment for six weeks she gained 11
pounds, and at the present writing she
is entirely well, although when they
brought her to me and asked me what
I could do for her I told them that I
could not give them iany encourage-
ment; but I knew that I had cured
persons who bad been considered in-
curable. but I positively would not
give them any assurance whatever.
Dear Doctor, just picture that pitiful
scene—father and mother with their
child and knowing their poor darling
could not be with them but a few
weeks longer; suppose you being that
father and seeing the end fast ap-
proaching and the best Medical skill
had been exhausted and after I had
produced such great results would you
not go abroad'and tell it to everyone?
Dear Doctor, you yourself was em-
ployed in that case and did all you
could for the child, and here you
are to have me prosecuted for dcing
things which you could not do. Do
you believe that your county attorney
will be so heartless as to prosecute
me for saving that child’s life? I
don’t think that there is a reputable
Physician in the city of Alva who
would prosecute me; any honest doc-
tor would say: "I am glad that such
a person exists who can do things we
Another case is that of Mrs. M. E.
Miller, who came to see me from
Avard, O. T , on the 10th of Septem-
ber with her little daughter. As soon
as Mrs Miller began to talk she be-
gan to cry, and with tears in her eyes
she told me that her girl was going
blind and that everything had been
done for her. I told Mrs. Miller not
to cry for as long as I lived her child
should not go blind. I put her child
under my system of treatment and
ordered her to go to school at once.
The child could not speak very plain
and on my last visit to Alva, Mrs. Mil-
ler came to the hotel smiling and told
me that the child could speak plainly
and that her eyes were greatly Im-
proved. Her husband went to see Mr.
Henderson and thanked him for
bringing me to Alva.
Dear Doctor, do you think that I
have committed a crime by restoring
this child’s eyes? Could you have
done better, although you treated
her? Do you think that the prosecut-
ing attorney of your county will be so
cruel as to conylct me for doing
things that you could not do? Do you
expect to get a jury to convict me for
saving the life of Mr. and Mrs. Fer-
brache’s child? Dear Doctor, I can
quote you more cases that I have han-
dled that you first treated, but this is
sufficient for the present. I will be In
AlvaJ December 10th, and sha'l be
pleased to meet you and hope that
vou will bring me • >me cases so that
' h*v will thank you for your kindness.
I will assure you that I will not nse
anvdrups on them. VVi h kind wishes
to you, I remain,

History of the
-■ --------- _ j
The Polled Durham breed of cattlo
represents one of the achievements of
American breeders and quite a notable
one, says Farm ami Live Stock Jour-
As to the history of the breed, the
Tolled Durham is really a Shorthorn
without horns. The Improved Short-
horn was bred from the old Durham
cattle, famous in England several hun-
dred years ago, and at one time em-
braced two families, Longhorns and
Shorthorns. The latter became the
most popular, and the Loughorus grad-
ually dropped out of sight. The Short-
horn's popularity resulted In Its Impor-
tation to this country nearly a hundred
years ago. From the Shorthorn comes
the Tolled, or horuh-ss, Durham. The
fumlly originated from u hornless
southern heifer and a mulley cow of Un-
known breeding. These animals were
bred to Shorthorn bulls, aud where the
progeny were horuless they were kept
for breeding purposes. At first only a
small percentage were hornless, and
Interbreeding of these gradually In-
creased the percentage until all the
pure bloods are polled.
In this Interbreeding of animals se-
lected because they were polled there
was naturally a loss of some valuable
points as compared with the beet
POLLED DURHAM BOLD.
Shorthorns, something that always
happens where a special characteristic
ts bred for. Once the hornless charac-
ter of the breed was fully established,
however, breeders of Polled Durliama
began to improve them by selection
ami lu this way brought them back to
the stamlard of the family from which
they were bred. It will be seen that
the hull iu the lllustrutlou Is an animal
of good proportions, aud we found that
he had excellent handling qualities and
lurge size. Ills weight was about 2,300
pounds. He was first lu his class at
the Inst International live stock show.
The breeders of Tolled Durhams re-
gard them as good types of dual pur-
pose cattle, good beef makers as well
as duiry animals.
Ihrap Enrich Orchards.
The greatest value of sheep In an or-
chard Is found probably In tlielr being
used as a means of fertilizing orchards
that are bearing. If put In the same
somewhat early In the spring and fed
a suitable supplementary food with
the grass which the orchard may fur-
nish It will be fouud that the sheep
will thus convey fertility to the land,
and they will do so In a marked degree
If fed on right kinds of food. Such
food may consist very largely of
wheat bran, which is in Itself a valua-
ble fertilizer. It may be wise, to en-
courage the sheep to eat It freely, to
add a little grain in the form of oats.
A little oil cake will also Improve the
food. The droppings thus left lu the
orchard will tend very much to Its en-
richment. The outcome Wiill be that
where this system Is persevered In
during considerable portl< ns of the
season the orchard will tl »s be pro-
vided with a liberal application of fer-
tility. This statement of course la
based on the supposition that there Is
some proper relatlou between the ntim
ber of sheep grazed nud the area of the
(iowl Honda In Mnrrlaod.
